Hello, my name is Jenny Nguyen. I'm a 20-year-old college student who recently has just moved into her first apartment with my dog (pitbull/lab mix) Bentley and my two cats, who I see as my own children. I take care of myself and my pets with what I can provide but it is always my number one priority that they are happy and healthy.
If you ask anybody about Bentley, you will always hear how his presence lights up the room with his goofy aloof personality and loving spirit. I don't think I have ever seen a dog light up a room the way he does, he loves everybody and always has a huge smile on his face when you meet him. Bentley has saved me from the darkest times in my life, and I don't think I could ever thank him enough for being the light at the end of the tunnel for me. I have never truly experienced love until I got Bentley, that pure and wholesome love that holds you like a warm hug after a bad day.
Recently Bentley ate up random things like my socks and passed them through, I took Bentley to the vet and got some medication for any irritation that the sock could have caused. As time went by, he ate something else which I believe is plastic (unsure because on the x-rays we weren't able to completely tell) which has gotten stuck in his intestines and stomach which has caused him to not be able to hold any food or water down. Yesterday I woke up at 1 am to Bentley throwing up, and decided to give him some water and a tiny bit of food with pumpkin to ease his stomach he ended up throwing that up too while having bloody diarrhea all at once.
I ended up taking him to the vet and he is now in surgery to remove the foreign objects from his intestines and stomach, which ended up costing $3200. This is the last option I have I am a barista who can barely afford her day to day paying rent, insurance, groceries, etc... all by myself. I was not prepared for an emergency like this to happen, so if possible anything would help tremendously because I am the only person supporting myself during a pandemic. Please help make sure Bentley gets home safely, I don't know what I would do without him.
